Hi I have a mixed breed rabbit and he gets frost bite on the bottoms of his hind legs. We are putting ointment on it now but the ointment almost gone, what kind of essential oils can i put on his feet?

I think it is probably sore hocks, which appears to be a raw, bald patch of skin on the rabbit's hock. this is caused when a heavier rabbit lives in a hutch or cage with a wire bottom. All of my rabbits have cage mats to prevent this from happening. I would guess it's not frostbite because rabbits have thick fur on their paws/feet.

Hmmm, not that I know of. Do you have pictures? That might help us assess what he might need.
